Music, PE, Science and Art

On Monday this week students had a special treat: a feast of movement , music, science and art. As part of the new EBA agreement, teachers have a planning and assessment day each term. While staff were busy planning, students had music, PE, Science and Art lessons. Thanks to Desiree, Jenny and Amaya for your expertise. It was wonderful to see the children so engaged with drums, ukulele and singing. Several students were still singing to me the following day!

We welcome Jenny Curtis as our new Art Teacher for the remainder of the school year while Juliet is on leave. Trinity Sanderson, our Business Manager is taking a year’s leave to take on a position at Camp Hill. We wish her all the best and thank her for her great work at Newstead. Deb’s piano classes finished off the term with a piano performance and party with their peers. Well done on a great term’s work.

Last night we had our Casserole night which was well attended, and a wonderful way to celebrate the term.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Newstead community for being so welcoming this term. I have enjoyed my time with your wonderful community and wish you all the best for the future. I am sure you will make Kathy Callandar feel welcome next term.

Thanks to staff who have worked so hard on beginning our work on High Impact Teaching Strategies, the Berry St model and Respectful Relationships.

I hope all families enjoy the break over Easter and have a happy holiday.




Thank you!

We have received your message and will be in contact shortly.
